Looking for short videos by leading artists and cultural thinkers on conversations in contemporary art, technology activism, and culture? The MIT Libraries now subscribes to DIS, a streaming video service offering over 112 videos from 56 different artists/authors that post solutions and/or questions that ask viewers to stretch their thinking. This exciting collection will be of interest both to artists looking for contemporary performances and to researchers looking for a different perspective on contemporary topics.
The collection includes works like Penumbra, a work by Hannah Black and Juliana Huxtable originally staged at Performance Space New York in 2019. The synopsis in DIS describes it as a story that depicts an animal, representing all animals, on trial for crimes including “being disgusting” and “the murder of everything.” Find this piece and more in DIS.
